Cleveland Fire Brigade held its Annual Charity Golf Day in July in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity and raised over £1000.

The day took place at Wynyard Golf Club, where 12 teams competed against each other in a tournament of ‘Texas Scramble’. Teams included local businesses and representatives from businesses in the fire sector.

The money raised will be donated to the Fire Fighters Charity which supports a

ll fire service personnel during their times of need, and assists thousands of individuals every year by providing pioneering treatment and support services.

Ian Hendry, Event Organiser said: “This was the seventh Annual Charity Golf Day we have held and again it was a great success, we were lucky enough to have the recent rainy weather hold off for us which was a big relief.

“My thanks go to Ian Hayton, Chief Fire Officer, Wynyard Golf Club, and all the participants…a great day that raised much needed funds for a great cause. Also thanks to Northumbrian Water who donated bottled water for the event”

James Harper from James Harper Golf – Custom Fit Centre said: “Fantastic day at the Cleveland Fire Brigade Charity Golf Day at Wynyard Golf Club a couple of weeks ago. A great event in aid of the Firefighter’s Charity.  Really well organised, lots of prizes and on a superb golf course. A fun and social day not to be missed.”
